Retin-A Now Available At Galumbeck Plastic Surgery
How Does Retin-A Work?
Skin cells contain retinoid receptors that help regulate how the cell functions. As we age, our cells behave more erratically. Consistent use helps normalize the cells.
Retin-A can improve skin texture and fade dark spots and freckles because it causes skin cells to turn over more rapidly. It shrinks dilated pores and improves cell turnover. Most importantly Retin-A stimulates collagen production in skin cells
How Can I Introduce Retin-A Into My Skincare Routine?
Use the cream once or twice per week increasing the frequency every 2-3 weeks until you work your way up to nightly use.
Before application, wash your skin. Wait fifteen minutes, then apply the cream once your face has completed dried off.
Use a pea-sized amount and dab it onto your forehead, cheeks and chin and lightly spread the cream to the entire face using an upward motion.
